ZIMBABWE is set to continue playing an advisory role in efforts to help Mozambique fight terrorist groups wreaking havoc in the northern parts of the country, Foreign Affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo has said.
This comes as Mozambique recently assumed the Southern African Development Community (Sadc) chairmanship during the just-ended 40th Sadc Ordinary Summit of Heads of State and Government, while Zimbabwe handed over its chairmanship of the Sadc Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation to Botswana.
Speaking during a post- Cabinet media briefing in Harare on Tuesday night, Moyo further said the insurgencies in Mozambique would not affect the country’s position as the Sadc chair.
“Zimbabwe’s involvement will be within the context of Sadc. So we will still play an advisory role, but the decisions we will make will be on the basis of what Sadc has decided,” Moyo said.
“We have protocols within Sadc and one of those is that the chairmanship of Sadc is going to be held on a rotational basis between the member countries. Daily News
